*Anti-bodies*: beyond the body ideal explores different attitudes to the
body. It contrasts the particularity of the artist's body-concept against
the ideal body-machine of the Olympic athlete, so revealing underlying
idealisations of the body as they are reproduced within different everyday
social contexts.

The programme takes the form of a series of contemporary art projects. These
are developed for different cultural contexts and produced by organisations
based in the south west of England, in collaboration with national and
international partners. The Interaction programme includes a website, an
online open submission and presentation platform *Open Anti-Bodies*, a youth
initiative *Young Anti-Bodies*, events, discussion, and resources.

*Anti-Bodies* seeks to encourage critical engagement with international art
and extend notions of context-led working and participation in the wider
social realm. The programme is scheduled to run until 2012.

At the launch event, curators and producers currently involved in *
Anti-Bodies* present the projects they are developing: Helen Cole, *
